FL Gov. Scott’s Drug Testing Order Unconstitutional, Declares Federal Judge

A federal judge declared Gov. Rick Scott’s order requiring drug testing for some 85,000 state workers unconstitutional Thursday, saying the governor showed no evidence of a drug problem at the agencies to warrant suspicionless testing.┬áThe ruling marks the second blow to Scott’s proposals regarding drug testing. The governor also suspended a state law he supported that required drug testing for welfare recipients last year after a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union. A federal judge in Orlando has temporarily blocked that law. – NBC Miami. H/T Drudge Report
